One cause of Exchange failure on iPhone/iPod Touch 2.0
Authored by: Shawn Parr on Jul 22, '08 08:07:00AM

In addition, I would also say one shouldn't be using any business email via non-SSL connections. It is just bad form, insecure, and quite frankly this whole SSL for email thing was figured out a LONG time ago.

While the OP is correct that Apple probably should check for non-SSL connectivity, really they should go to their IT department about fixing the huge glaring security hole in their email system.

If Apple does allow autodetection of non-SSL Exchange accounts, I think they should pop up a message if that is the only way to connect. Something like "Hey, we can do this, but it is unsecure and a really really bad idea. Call your IT folks and tell them to get with the program!"
